SimpleMind can store mind maps in any folder. Because of that, you can store mind maps in a folder that is synchronized by a cloud service. For example, iCloudDrive or the Dropbox app. This cloud service synchronizes your mind maps.

Note! The AppStore edition is sandboxed. When you open a Mind Map this way, adding or opening links to external documents or mind maps is not possible.

    Tip! To copy an existing (local) mind map use the main menu "Mind Map" - "Export Mind Map". Select .smmx and choose the location.
    If the mind maps are already stored on a cloud and that cloud app is installed, use Finder to move mind maps.
